    He was really howling on Morning Joe....and I can't say I disagree with him anymore.

    Why are we not talking about breaking up the banks ?

    Why are we not talking about breaking up the military-industrial complex ?

    Why are we not taking on a bloated Social Security ?

    Why are we not taking on Medicare ?

    He said everything keeps getting bigger and I agree this is going to screw us.

    That is why the I don't get either side.

    Patty Murray was part of the failed supercommittee.....she has to have Social Security.....

    She's a loser, like the rest of the Senate.

    Why isn't McConnel fighting more regulations. They should be castigating the EPA and other "regulators" for their killing small business.

    Don't worry. Be happy. Mitt the Twit will fix all.

    At least according to some.

    Why are you all getting all bent out of shape on a few little issues?
    Your champion is coming.

    Yep. And my answer to those questions would be that our "leaders" are more concerned with re-election and fundraising than they are in making the tough choices that might alienate people. And that's why we need:
    1. A Balanced Budget Amendment
    2. Strict Term Limits
    3. Publicly-funded Elections
    Waiting for our "leaders" to behave responsibly is a fool's errand.

    Why would our dear elected leaders ever entertain the ideas mentioned above? Let alone pass them into law?
    Wouldn't that reduce their ability to stay in office and wield power?
    Why would they want that?
    They have a pretty good gig as it is. I doubt they would be open to change of the scale you mentioned.
